Transcript
Rome to the end of the
Republic (31 BC)
• Unlike previous conquests, the Roman conquest of Greece was
long-drawn and fiercely fought.
• Almost immediately after the end of the second Punic war the
Romans attacked Greece.
• King Perseus of Macedon resisted them for years
• The conquest of Greece took 50 years of almost constant
warfare, and it is a testament to the tenacity of the Romans.
• After the battle of Corinth (146 BC) the whole of the Greek
peninsula becomes Roman territory
• In the same year the Romans destroy Carthage, and thus they
complete the subjugation of their two ancient rivals for the
supremacy of the Mediterranean.

prize of supreme power.

bloody conflicts.
